The one constant is change. Yesterday’s technology cannot support today’s demanding business requirements. Cisco addresses data center IT challenges with the Cisco Unified Computing System, bringing unification of server, network, and storage access that provides unparalleled performance, lower cost, and management efficiencies. Customer challenges that range from linking data centers, moving virtual machines between private and public clouds, and securing of priority bandwidth can be successfully supported with Cisco business solutions. Hear from Paul Perez how proven and secure Cisco cloud infrastructure solutions deliver customers a competitive advantage in today’s dynamic business world and view into cloud infrastructures of the future. Also hear from Oracle how they leverage Cisco’s technology to benefit our joint customers.
